Gear Vendors Overdrive Celebrates Winners of 2018 Drag Week


There are fewer events that truly prove the mettle of a street-driven race car than the annual Drag Week competition. Imagine taking a 1,000-plus-horsepower 9-second (and much, much faster) machine out on Power Tour, and toss in one or two bouts of drag racing each and every day, and yeah, you’ve got Drag Week.

When race cars are expected to run their best ET’s and cruise hundreds of miles a day, there’s only one overdrive trusted by the big daddy racers: Gear Vendors Overdrives. And just to prove it, Gear Vendors issued a big ol’ congratulations announcement to the twenty seven (!) winners who ran a Gear Vendor over/underdrive all the way to a podium finish this year.

Ranging from old school gassers, naturally-aspirated small blocks, to blown and turbo’ed big blocks and wild Unlimited class winners, Gear Vendors made it possible for these insane machines to traverse the long stretches of highway driving by splitting their radical rear gear ratios (5.88’s in many cases) and preserve their engines until they lined up at the staging lights. It’s a huge testament to the durability of Gear Vendors and what can be accomplished!
